Classic panettone by Fiasconaro is an irreplaceable part of the Italian holiday season, and once you give it a taste, it’s bound to become the ultimate essential for you, too. By prolonging the fermentation process of the mother dough to 36 hours, letting the aromas seep in, Sicilian chefs have created an even more delicious version of traditional panettone (and no one even dared to think it was possible). Looking at Fiasconaro's panettone, here are some of the culinary secrets we think they are keeping from us. While looking pretty in pink, the classic panettone is flavored with Marsala and Zibibbo wine - oh-so-aromatic varieties from Sicily. The fortified Marsala wine is often used in cooking for creating nutty, caramelized flavors with its vanilla-like aroma, however Zibibbo is actually one of the rarest grapes in the world, also known as Muscat of Alexandria. The eye-catching Zibibbo wine with light yellow hues carries an intense aroma with notes of candied citrus and dried fruits, and we know what you’re thinking - cause we are already thinking exactly the same thing. If you’ve already skimmed through our blog post about panettone, you know it’s usually made with raisins and candied citrus peels. So, by adding fabled Sicilian white wine varieties with irresistibly fruity notes, Fiasconaro has doubled the sweet pleasures of luscious aromas. So, here are some things to expect from classic panettone by Fiasconaro: its pillowy, soft dough is elegantly filled with fragrant candied citrus peel and raisins making it perfect for celebrations and festivities. It’s hand-wrapped in colorful packaging, so if you’re looking for a dazzling gift for that one friend with a crazy sweet tooth, it will be spot-on. After you take a bite, it will be easy to tell why it’s called classic!
Fiasconaro pandorato is the meeting point of Veronese Christmas cake and Milanese sister-treat! While shaped like a classic panettone, it’s actually pandoro that’s hiding underneath - sweet, crumbly dough free from raisins and candied fruits that picky-eaters shy away from. The fluffy yet pleasantly moist dough will make your olfactory senses go crazy in the most delicious way. While your nose enjoys an enchanting aroma, your eyes get to stare at beautiful sugar icing, making your festive cake look like a snowy mountain! However, despite its, as one might say, humble interior, Fiasconaro’s pandorato is as versatile as it gets. It goes wonderfully with pretty much all of your favorite beverages, starting from coffee to festive eggnog. However, pandorato will also make an unforgettable duo when paired with an Italian soda - the most convival combination! Oh, and don’t forget the spreads - unique Sicilian orange marmalade or soft Sicilian almond cream, you pick (if you think it’s even possible)!
